Predicting word accuracy for the automatic speech recognition of non-native speech
We have developed an automated method that predicts the word accuracy of a speech recognition system for non-native speech, in the context of speaking proficiency scoring. A model...

Dialog prediction for a general model of turn-taking
Today there are solutions for some specific turn-taking problems, but no general model. We show how turn-taking can be reduced to two more general problems, prediction and selecti...
